Position Description

Summer internships will run during the period of May – July, Fall externships will run August – November, and Spring externships will run February – April. Interns assist with substantive judicial matters under the direction of AOC supervisors and managers. Projects and tasks will be assigned by the AOC supervisor and manager. The assignments will be meaningful and give students a real opportunity to be exposed to current court practices and services. Interns may also have an opportunity to visit the courts across the state.
